Imaging methods are used widely to understand structure of brain and other biological objects. However, sample penetration by light microscopy is limited due to light scattering by the tissue. A number of methods have been recently developed to solve this problem. In one approach (SeeDB) simple procedure for clarifying brain samples for imaging was(More)
Huntington’s disease (HD) is an autosomal-dominant inherited neurodegenerative disease resulting from expanded amino acid (CAG) repeat in the gene that encodes protein huntingtin (Htt). HD remains incurable for now. A lot of evidence implicates aberrant synaptic connection between cortical and striatal neurons, a key component of HD pathophysilogy, which(More)
Optogenetics is a modern nanobiological approaches allowing modulation of the physiological status of electrostimulated cells, including the neurons. The optogenetic approach was used to evaluate the efficiency of synaptic transmission between the neurons in a mixed corticostriatal culture. Synaptic contacts between the cortical and striatal neurons forming(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is an inherited autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder caused by a polyQ expansion (>36 glutamine repeats) in Huntingtin (Htt) protein. It is believed that dysfunction of corticostriatal system is one of the main pathological events. Special attention is paid to synaptic dysfunction of transmission between cortical and(More)
